Well, that was interesting. No sale at $17m, but a quick and bumpy ride to that point.

Nostalgia, but in Byron's case, I think most of those were his from small kid times.

$17 million. Part of the outrage over the conduct of this auction was that the auctioneer said 70 when the number was 17. People were pissed.
